An Essential Part of the Recovery Process(Amazon Customer) "I have lost too many friends from cancer and having this book for myself and available for friends has been a great help and comfort. One of my friends who has cancer equates it to belonging to a "club"! Whether you have or don't have cancer or have loved ones with cancer, this book is essential!"
You are Not Alone(Raymond McLaurin) "This is a great book that will guide you and help you deal with any illness especially cancer. The author makes it very welcoming for anyone to read and understand how to stand up and accept that you have cancer. As for myself, I was very afraid and scared until I read this book and it made me realize that there is hope by reading other people's experiences. It gave me strength and I was able to be positive with the guidance that this book provided me. I would like to say thank you to the author and the patients and survivors who shared their stories to help make others stronger."
If You Have Cancer, This is the Book for You (Medical Professional) "Fantastic book! Wonderful for people with cancer and people who have recovered from cancer. Great insight and support. Very informative and uplifting."
Book Created with Love(Chris M.) "This book is not only amazing reference material, but also true accounting from individuals walking through cancer treatment and survival. I highly recommend this book!"
Everything You Didn't Know About Cancer (Healthy BDM) "I am a cancer survivor and still get so much from this book. The way it was written is so easy to follow. This is not only a book that is fantastic for someone dealing with cancer, it also helps care givers and survivors. Very inspirational. I highly recommend this book."
Must-Have Book for Patients and Caregivers(Amazon Customer) "This book is a fantastic reference book for cancer patients and caregivers. Insightful tips and ideas from cancer patients, helps to navigate the battle of beating cancer, dealing with medication side effects, and helps caregivers with knowledge to be more prepared in their cancer care. I wish this fabulously-written book was in print when I was battling the worst of my Stage 4 Colon Cancer and Stage 1 prostate cancer. However, I am lucky enough to know Amor, the author, and several of the patients whose stories are included in this book. Including my story. Highly recommended you buy this book for yourself, if battling cancer, for a friend battling cancer or for a caregiver caring for a cancer patient." An Amazing Book!(Misa Flank) "We were told about this book by a friend who has had a serious fight with cancer We were so impressed by the amount of information in this book that we have already purchased 4 copies for friends with cancer who are battling cancer. Our friends have said that they keep this by their bed, because they feel it gives them hope. The author who has had two battles with cancer and first-hand knowledge has made this book a valuable asset. We highly recommend it to anyone who has been affected by cancer."
Faith & Positive Attitude Works!(Bruce) "I appreciate all of the time and effect that Amor has put into writing this book. My father went through prostate cancer 35 years ago, and his strong belief in God and positive attitude helped him get through the tough times. It would have been nice for him to have this book back then."
Great Resource Book for Cancer Patients and Caregivers(Susan M.) "I have known Amor for over 15 years and she is one of the sweetest, caring and amazing persons you would ever want to meet. During her second battle with cancer, she contacted me about writing a book, and to support me also going through a second battle with cancer. I was honored to be asked to participate and share my experiences. Her book is a must for anyone going through cancer and for caregivers. Each of us had a different story to tell, each journey is different, and hopefully, sharing ours will help patients to fight this disease and know that you are not alone. This book is not just a story, but a great resource as she carefully divided research sections to make it easy to find what you are look for. Amor, you are the best, love you a bunch and keep up the good work!"
Fantastic Read (Marty Luckey) "I bought this book for a friend as I enjoyed my copy so well, thought she could benefit by it. She has definitely been there done that twice as well. She is really enjoying reading the book and says every cancer patient can benefit from reading it! Having been a care giver myself, I fully understand that not only cancer patients, but caregivers, can learn from this book. There has been a tremendous amount of research done by Amor, the author, as I know her as a loving person and wants to share her hard work and journey with all who will learn from reading her book ... It deserves to be a Best Seller! She has been asked to do a children's version of this book too, which I am sure would be a plus!!
A MUST READ!!!!(Catherine T.) "I am so glad that I purchased this book - so much helpful and honest information which made it easier to understand what to expect when going through treatments. You can tell that the author really did her homework. I also really enjoyed the fact that you get so many different perspectives from an array of other cancer patients who have gone through the same thing and are transparent about what to expect. It's a very beneficial read for anyone going through cancer treatments or anyone who has loved ones going through the same thing. Five stars all around! Highly recommended!!!!!!!!"
In Their Own Words (Chris B.) "This book is extremely thorough. Lots of details from first-hand accounts of cancer survivors. What I love about this book is that it's about how to deal with the entire process of going through cancer. From chemotherapy to doctors ... it's all here in the words of actual survivors."
Very Poignant and Frank(Amazon Customer) "The survivors interviewed in the book openly discuss their emotional and physical battles with cancer which gives the reader a real sense of their struggles. The frank advice and comments at the end of the book were valuable. I highly recommend this reading to anyone going through treatment for cancer and family members who are helping loved ones going through treatment."
FANTASTIC!!!(Valerie K.) "What a beautiful and helpful book! I love the down and dirty, VERY PERSONAL and transparent responses from the survivors. A lot of very good information that cancer patients will appreciate knowing in advance or during their treatments."
(Rev. Linda Siddall) "A friend in San Francisco bought the book, loved it and gave it away to someone who really wanted it. Then he bought himself another copy….My SF friend is also a pancreatic cancer survivor and, like many cancer survivors, wished he had this book a few years ago when he went through treatment."
"My SF friend and my sister, who let one of her friends borrow her copy, are still raving about it." (Misa & Ed Flank) "Our dear friend Paul reads the book every night after he takes his cancer meds. The book has really helped my friends who have the book."
